breakfast…and monday

May 19, 2008 |  Category:   life


One of my favorite breakfasts – eggs with salsa, rolled in a tortilla. I used to love ordering huevos rancheros at a cafe down the street, but it closed a few months ago so I haven’t had it in a while. Leftovers from the previous dinner’s Mexican food night makes for tasty fixings for breakfast the next day. I just love the combo so much (and yeah, I’m one of those people who eat eggs with ketchup).

Yesterday started out to be a sunny day, but it got increasingly cloudy so we came inside from the annual 5th Avenue Street Fair here in the neighborhood. 5th is half a block away from where we live, so you have no choice but to run right into it if you need to be out and about. I actually look forward to the Street Fair for one thing: freshly made hand rolls from the Blue Ribbon Sushi stand. Both Mia and I scarfed ours down. That’s the nice thing about the 5th Avenue Street Fair – tube socks and meat-on-a-stick aside – this street fair is a little different because of all the local restaurants and shops that spill out from their storefronts for a day. You can sample food from as many restaurants as you want for as little as a few bucks.

Over in Fort Greene, Mark sold cookies at the Flea solo. It started to really rain in earnest around 3 o’clock, so he packed up early and left like all the other vendors, but he came home with a bounty of goods as many vendors started giving food away: 6 mini cupcakes from Kumquat Cupcakery, 2 boxes of chocolates from our neighbors, NuNu Chocolates, a bag of coffee from Crop to Cup, and a muffin from Choice. Hmmm…maybe rain at the Flea isn’t so bad after all.
